Achievements of Indians in S&T
Raman was Indian physicist who carried out ground-breaking work in the field of light scattering.
Raman led an experiment with K. S. Krishnan, on the scattering of light, when he discovered what is called the Raman effect.
It gave proof of the quantum nature of light.
He won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his work on the scattering of light and for the discovery of the Raman effect”.
He was the first Asian and
Positron and Antimatter
What is Matter?
Matter is made up of atoms, which are the basic units of chemical elements such as hydrogen, helium or oxygen.
Atoms are the basic units of matter and the defining structure of elements. atoms are made up of three particles: Protons, Neutrons and Electrons.
What is Antimatter?
Antimatter is the opposite of normal matter.
More specifically, the sub-atomic particles of antimatter have properties opposite those of normal matter.
